Is it ok to drink just one cup of coffee in the 1st trimester of pregnancy? I'm a preschool teacher and i need my coffee

Is it ok to drink just one cup of coffee in the 1st trimester of pregnancy? I'm a preschool teacher and i need my coffee

1 cup?: If you are asking 1 cup in your entire firs trimester, you are ok. If you are asking 1 cup daily during your first trimester, now you are pushing the envelope. Basically, the concern is the caffeine, and 1 cup a day is between 100-150 mg of caffeine daily.So would you take a tablet of no-doz every day while you are in your first trimester? Likely not . Try decaf or half strength- keep <100mg daily. ...Read more

AM 6 MONTHS PREGNANT WITH TWIN ONE IS STILLBORN AND THE OTHER ONE IS ALIVE WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO DO?

Very high risk: This is a very high risk situation and should be handled one on one. Hopefully you have an Obgyn and possibly a Perinatologist involved in your care who can help guide you through the process. In general the pregnancy would be continued focusing on the safety of the live twin. The type of twins, location of babies, status of amniotic fluid and cervix are important factors. ...Read more

Hi doctor, I am 6 months pregnant with twins.One of my twin is found to have single umbilical artery in the anomaly scan. Is there any prob wit this?

Maybe: Single umbilical artery occurs in up to 1% of all pregnancies. In 25%, the baby may have abnormalities of the heart, skeletal system, and kidneys among other things. Your doctor may want to send you for a higher level ultrasound study for a more intensive fetal survey evaluation. If other problems are found then genetic counseling is often obtained .Remember, in 75% there are no problems. ...Read more

Twin growth.: Many twin pregnancies have one twin larger than the other. The important issue is how different. As the pregnancy progresses if the difference gets worse it could be a sign of twin to twin transfusion. This is why we usually do monthly scans on twins. ...Read more

Get evaluated: You need to see an ob/gyn and get evaluated. Your second twin is in very serious danger. A maternal fetal expert can advise you on what options are available. Best of luck. Lack of amniotic fluid suggests a problem with the kidneys or bladder. ...Read more
